Worst ever

Years ago this might have been an ideal place to go but it is sliding quickly. This used to be a fun and exciting upbeat and friendly Casino and the gaming was particularly Fair and food was very good. I have to say my last visits have been left to be desired. The first off it smells really bad now just like a big ashtray it seems they cater more for the smoking and stick non-smokers any tiny corner of the building if they wish to play and not be bothered by smoke not my only complaint I tried the food again and his got so worse I only ordered pancakes and bacon and the bacon was burned and the pancakes I could not even cut with a knife just a chewy mess. And the color of the batter must have been gray because my pancakes were so dark was real disgusting. For the staff you find very few friendly workers anymore foodstaff cashiers are rude floor workers nonexistent I guess only if you win then they're right on you waiting for their hand out period but speaking of winning that doesn't happen very often you put a ton of money into this casino and get nothing back and I'm not just saying because of losses I look around and you don't see people winning anymore machines are tight I suppose. For example a machine I play here at the fort I could drop $700 and get nothing back yet I could go to same machine that competing casinos only spend $100 and get 300 return just funny how that seems yes since I've learned my lesson with this casino I will not return I feel it has gone downhill so badly in just this last year overall gaming staff and food is all crap and I do feel bad that I have to say this but this is my opinion. The other casinos have earned my business. I do hope that things change for this dying Casino

Best in Phoenix area

This place has a good mix of older reel shots and the latest video slots. Like most of the AZ tribal casinos they have penny slots but most have the 100 line one per line button as the min bet so they are really fancy dollar machines. Fort McDowell is better place than most of the Casino Az or Gila River casinos who really put the hurt on min bets. The food deals here remind me of Vegas and are far better deals than other casinos in the Phoenix area. The slot club isn't as good as it was a few years back but still you can get discounts from having their card at the food locations in the building. Cafe 87 is bar far the best food and deal here. The hotel has top notch rooms and during the summer has rates to beat the heat and we stay there a few times each summer.

The Best Casino in Arizona

Fort McDowell Casino is our favorite resorts in Arizona. The Radisson has specials available online for discounts so that everyone can afford to stay here. Players can relax, eat, play and more at the Fort anytime.

The Food is exceptionally good at the Fort, we enjoy the Discounts with our players club card, and the Promotions are the best! The Lucky 7 Saloon has great bands Fridays and Saturdays.

Great customer service throughout the Casino. We highly recommend Fort McDowell Casino.

Our Favorite Local Casino

This is our favorite of any of the reservation casinos in the Phoenix area. They feature $1 draft beers at the main casino bar, and a great mix of machines that do seem to pay well on most occasions we've been.

If you are planning on eating at the casino, do NOT even consider the buffet... we've gone twice, and both times we were horribly ill and the food is mediocre at best. The sit-down cafe, however, does have pretty good food at a great value, and there is also an Asian Noodle bar in the non-smoking area.

Try to avoid going on a Friday-Sunday, or be prepared to wait a while for a machine...

If you're in the area and want a nice place to go and unwind, we recommend Fort McDowell.
